2. Technical statement

We are committed to making our website accessible, in accordance with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 No.952.

This accessibility statement applies to all website, mobile applications and relevant digital content that we own, that falls within the remit of the above mentioned legislation and the Equality Act 2010 as appropriate.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 No.952, due to the non-compliance(s) on our known Issues page.

Non-accessible content

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is likely to create a barrier, we’ll state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives - see our known issues page for more details.

If we have failed to identify a barrier, please email accessibility@gravesham.gov.uk so that we can investigate further.

The declaration made in this statement regarding compliance with The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations 2018 No.952 is accurate and based on an evaluation of the website’s compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG) to AA standard.
